The title for this article occured to me while my wife Queenie and I were shopping at our regular supermarket. As was our custom, while she went about checking her list and we zigzagged through the different shelves and product lanes, I was pushing our cart and keeping tab of the running total. I enjoyed the mental exercise and even during times when we had a calculator, I would prefer to run the totals through my head as a form of cerebral calisthenics.
